Klay Thompson finished with 12 points Friday at Milwaukee, but he was 0-of-2 from behind the arc to snap a 95-game streak with at least one 3-pointer made.

Thompson was back from a rest on Wednesday, but apparently it hindered him more than it helped. His 95-game stretch with a triple was the third-longest in NBA history. He wasn't terribly broken up about it after the game, though. "I didn't know. Oh well. Who cares?," he said. With Thompson back in action it was Nick Young heading back to a minor role off the bench.
Jan 13 - 1:08 AM

Klay Thompson (rest) will not play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

The Warriors will be missing both Splash Brothers on Wednesday, as Stephen Curry (sprained right ankle) has also been ruled out of this contest. Patrick McCaw and Nick Young will likely divvy up most of Thompson's minutes.
Jan 10 - 3:59 PM

Klay Thompson made 4-of-16 from the field for 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

Probably the biggest story here was that Thompson got a haircut while in Los Angeles. He was on fire before this game, but he talked about how he struggled today. "You see the way I was shooting? Short, left, right, every which way," he said. Even with the bad game, he was still able to extend his streak with 3-pointer to 94 minutes, which is third all time (Curry, Korver)
Jan 6 - 7:09 PM

Klay Thompson scored 31 pointers including seven 3-pointers on Thursday vs. the Rockets.

The Splash Brothers combined for 60 points and 11 triples with Kevin Durant (calf) out. Thompson finished 12-of-21 from the field with four assists and three rebounds, and he's now scored 21+ points in four straight games with 17 total triples in that span. He's been a top-24 player in standard 9-category leagues this season and there's no reason why he can't hold it for the rest of the campaign.
Jan 4 - 11:19 PM

Klay Thompson (back) was able to play in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, and he ended up going for 21 points across 34 minutes.

Thompson was dealing with some tightness in his lower back, but it doesn't sound like he was ever in doubt to play. He didn't show any ill effects of the ailment, hitting 8-of-19 from the field, including 5-of-11 from behind the 3-point line. Thompson was also reunited with his splash brother, Steph Curry, who missed the past 12 games due to an ankle injury. The duo combined for 15 triples in the 13-point win.

Klay Thompson (low back tightness) is available to play in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies and will start.

Sat, Dec 30, 2017 07:55:00 PM

Klay Thompson (low back tightness) is probable for Saturday against the Grizzlies.

This is a back end of a back-to-back set and Stephen Curry (ankle) is expected to play, so sitting Thompson out here does make some sense. Although, it is a probable tag and Thompson has looked healthy lately, including a 24-point Friday.
Sat, Dec 30, 2017 03:00:00 PM

Klay Thompson finished wtih 24 points, three rebounds and two assists with just two turnovers across 36 minutes in Friday's 111-100 loss against the Hornets.

Thompson was 10-of-20 from the field, including 3-of-7 from behind the 3-point line. He has at least one 3-pointer in each of his 36 games this season, and one or more triples in 91 straight NBA regular-season games dating back to Dec. 10, 2016 in Memphis. He continues to produce at second-round value for most fantasy owners so far this season.
Sat, Dec 30, 2017 01:32:00 AM

Klay Thompson was good for 16 points on 7-of-18 shooting, including 2-of-9 from behind the 3-point line, in Friday's 113-106 win against the Lakers.

Thompson also contributed with two blocked shots, an assist, a rebound and a steal across his 34 minutes, serving as the tertiary scoring option behind Kevin Durant and Jordan Bell with Steph Curry (ankle) on the mend. He has bagged at least two 3-pointers in 15 straight games, and he has at least one triple in 87 consecutive contests dating back to Dec. 10, 2016 in Memphis.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 01:56:00 AM

Klay Thompson scored a game-high 29 points vs. Memphis on Wednesday, hitting 10-of-16 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with three 3-pointers, five assists, two rebounds and two steals.

Klay opened the game with nine straight makes from the field before cooling off, and his scoring helped Golden State cruise to another home win despite the absence of Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Zaza Pachulia. He tends to get overshadowed by his superstar teammates, but Klay is sitting pretty with second-round roto value this season.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 03:11:00 AM

Klay Thompson hit just 6-of-24 shots and 4-of-13 3-pointers for 17 points, 10 rebounds and two assists in 42 minutes of Monday's overtime win over the Lakers.

Thompson never got it going tonight, but that didn't stop the Warriors from downing the Lakers on Kobe Bryant night in Oracle. Thompson, who had scored at least 21 points in five straight and was shooting it well coming in, will look to bounce back on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 01:55:00 AM

Klay Thompson stayed hot on Friday in a win over the Pistons, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

No sacrificing these days for Klay. Interestingly, he was 2-of-9 from deep in this game and he continues to struggle a bit when he's not next to Stephen Curry (ankle). On the other hand, Thompson is just rolling over his last nine game with a delicious 68.4 TS%, averaging 22.8 points, 3.9 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.4 blocks and 3.7 treys in that span. This hot streak has launched him into the top 20 for standard leagues so far this year.
Sat, Dec 9, 2017 12:03:00 AM

Klay Thompson scored 22 points with four rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday.

He'll be looking at some added usage as Stephen Curry (ankle) recovers from a sprain. Thompson actually hasn't been good when he's not next to Curry, but it was more about him making only 33.3 percent of treys in the 132 minutes without Curry and with Kevin Durant before tonight. Thompson does have a 22.8 usage rate in that instance, but we're expecting it to be a lot better than that. His owners can expect some big stat lines to close out 2017.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 12:48:00 AM

The Warriors improved to 18-6 with a win in Miami on Sunday, aided by Klay Thompson's 19 points, five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

The Warriors dropped 46 assists on Friday, which Steve Kerr described as "insane," adding, "If we can play with that kind of energy — with a little better judgment and defense — then we are on to something." The Warriors had 32 assists on 47 made shots tonight, compared to 17 assists for Miami, and Klay's shot-making has a lot to do with those numbers. He's exceeding most draft-day expectations as a top-20 value.
